We received this gown with the following lettter:

“Dear Eric and Angel Gown angels,

My daughter Kristen wore this dress as a bridesmaid at her aunts wedding when she was but a tiny little 11 year old. She is now 24 and only slightly bigger than all those years ago.

Many years ago, I was working at a medical centre and a women was brought in by a taxi driver in full labour. In error they thought we were a clinic and would be able to assist. We had only one GP available and between the two of us we fought very hard to save the life of both mother and child. Due to the baby being born very premature and us not having the equipment necessary, the baby boy passed away shortly after birth. The mother was weak from severe blood loss and I held her son against her chest until he took his last breath. It is without a doubt one of the saddest days of my life (ek huil snot en trane soos ek hier skryf). Whatever garments you manage to make from this bridesmaid dress, please would you dedicate it to this little boy and his mom and to every women and child not treated with the kindness and human dignity which should be granted to all.

Thank you for the wonderful, kind work that you do.”

Thank you ladies for sharing your this special gown with us!
